Students that passed physics ,Set P=80 Students that passed chemistry , Set C = 70 Students that passed maths , Set M = 40

Students that failed all the 3 subjects = 10

Total = P + C + M - (PnC + CnM + PnM) + (PnCnM) + Neither =>100 = 190 - (PnC + CnM + PnM) + (PnCnM) + 10 => (PnCnM) = (PnC + CnM + PnM) - 100

For (PnCnM) to be minimum , (PnC + CnM + PnM) should be minimum . So we need to the minimum overlap between the three sets. For P and C , P=80 C=70 Then the total number of students that passed physcis and chemistry = 80+70 = 150 But there are only 90 students. Therefore a minimum of 60 students passed physics and chemistry . Similary for C and M , C+M=70+40=110 Therefore a minimum of 20 students passed Chemistry and Maths And for P and M, P+M=120 Therefore a minimum of 30 students passed Physics and Maths. Mimimum value of (PnC + CnM + PnM) = 60+20+30=110

Minimum value of (PnCnM) = 110-100 =10

Answer C

(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25

Out of 100 students 10 failed in all 3 subjects. So, 90 students passed at least one of the subjects - Physics, Chemistry or Math. We need to find the minimum value of the students passed in all 3 subs or the min. value of the overlapping of the 3 sets having - 80, 70 and 40 students, where the total sh be 90. 80 : 10 |-----------------------------------------------------|---------| 90

Total = A + B + C - (Sum of 2 overlaps) - 2(all 3 overlaps) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40 - (Sum of 2 overlaps) - 2(all 3 overlaps) + 10 100 = 200 - (Sum of 2 overlaps) - 2(all 3 overlaps)

(Sum of 2 overlaps) + 2(all 3 overlaps) = 100 --- (1) Also, max value of (Sum of 2 overlaps) + (all 3 overlaps) = 90 --- (2) (1) - (2) All 3 overlaps = 10.

Total students passed in atleast one subject = Total number of students - students failed in all 3 subjects = 100 - 10 = 90 To find the least students passed in all 3 subjects (I used process eliminating each answer) see attached venn diagrams

Total Students = 100

Total passed = Total - failed = 100 - 10 = 90

Now the question is what is the minimum number of students passed in all three subjects?

Here our aim is to plug in such nummbers so that sum of total students passed is 90 and students passed in a subject individually remains what is given in question.

We notice, Choices A to E are in ascending order and we need the least number. so we will start plugging in the values from A to E.

Option - A, Passed in All three subjects = 0

1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 20 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 0

In this we notice that students passed in Physics = 1 + 3 + 4 = 50 + 20 + 0 = 90. But It is given that In physics only 80 passed. Hence, "A" is wrong.

Option - B, Passed in All three subjects = 5

1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 15 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 5

In this we notice that students passed in Physics = 1 + 3 + 4 = 50 + 20 + 5 = 75. But It is given that In physics only 80 passed. Hence, "B" is wrong.

Option - C, Passed in All three subjects = 10

1. Passed in Physics + Chemistry = 50 2. Passed in Chemistry + Maths = 10 3. Passed in Maths + Physics = 20 4. Passed in All three subjects (P,C,M) = 10

In this we notice that students passed in Physics, chemistry and maths are equal to given values and sum of all passed students is 90. Hence, "C" is Correct.

We do not need to test D and E because question states "at least".

My solution: ( C is the correct answer)

80 +70 + 40 - (numbers of those passed only 2 subjects (A) + 2* numbers of those passed 3 subjects (B)) = 100 - 10 =90 => A+2*B = 100

Trials and errors: The question asks about the least possible value, so we start from the smallest.

(1) B = 0 => A = 100. But with 80, 70, and 40 students passed Physics, Chemistry, and Maths, the largest number of those passed only 2 subjects is 95 (max A =95) (80+15), as below

=> (1) INCORRECT

(2) B=5 => A=90. Since 5 students passed all 3 subjects, the remains are 75 Physics, 65 Chemistry, and 35 Maths. Same to (1), the max A = 87 (75+12), as below

=> (2) INCORRECT

(3) B=10 => A=80. Since 10 students passed all 3 subjects, the remains are 70 Physics, 60 Chemistry, and 30 Maths. Now it is possible to have 80 students passed only 2 subjects (70+10), as below

So (C) is CORRECT

QUESTION #13:

In a class of 100 students, 80 passed Physics, 70 passed Chemistry, and 40 passed Math. If 10 students failed in all the three subjects, at least how many of the students passed all the three subjects?

(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25

Answer C

100 = P + C + M - (Sum of 2 subjects passed) - 2(all three subject passed) + Neither 100 = 80 + 70 + 40 - (2 subject) - 2(3 subject) + 10 (2 subject) + 2(3 subject) = 100

Also, passed in at least one subject is 90, i.e., passed in 1 subject + passed in 2 subject + passed in 3 subject = 90 To maximize pass in at least 2 subject, passed in 1 subject = 0, i.e., passed in 2 subject + passed in 3 subject = 90

From the above two equation, we can get passed in all three subject = 10.

Total students = 100, Physics Passed = 80, Chemistry Passed = 70, Maths Passed = 40, All 3 failed =10. Therefore Students who have not failed all three = 100 -10 =90 Out of these 90 students we have to find out at the least students who passed in all 3 subjects.

Out of 90 students , 80 have passed in Physics. So 10 have not passed in Physics. Out of 90 students, 70 have passed in Chemistry. So 20 have not passed in Chemistry. To minimise the number of students who have passed in all 3, lets take 30 students to have passed in 10 and 20 students who have failed in Physics and Chemistry respectively. So there are 10 more students left who have passed in Maths and that will be the overlap region students who have passed in all three subjects.

(A) 0 (B) 5 (C) 10 (D) 20 (E) 25

Ans:C ahh I marked the wrong one again ---I marked D in a hurry. The answer can be arrived with the help of a formula---> Total=A+B+C -(sum of exactly 2 groups overlap)- 2(All three) +Neither 100=80+70+40- (A)-2(B)+ 10 -100=-A-2B 100=A+2B we need to find B. It is to found out at least how many students passed in all. Sum of exactly two groups overlaps can be maximum 80 because it cannot be greater than the number of students passing in a single subject. so, 100=80+2B B=10 Answer is C. Will I get points for correct explanation, even my answer was wrong.

JAMBOBREE OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

In the question on Venn diagrams when we have to calculate either the maximum or the minimum value as in this question ,we find the number line method one of the convenient methods

We will represent the total number of 100 students on the number line as shown

we will start from the left to right and place the group with largest number .i.e physics in this case and the place the group with second largest number .i.e chemistry in this case from the right to left. Also it is mentioned that 10 students did not pass in any subject so we will keep them separate

now we need to place the 40 students who passed the math subject among the 90 students as shown in the number line so that the over lap of all the three subjects the minimum. We can place 20 from 1 to 20 and 10 students from 80 to 90 but the remaining 10 students who passed math will been to be placed between 20 to 80 i.e they will be the students who have already passed physics and chemistry .so the minimum number of students who have passed all the three subjects is 10

Now I understood it with your full explanation. I have more questions:

when I say min is 10, it means it may get higher than 10. what would be the case if 15 or 20? what would be the max number ? I think max = 40 students as I can't exceed number of students who passed in math.
